Capt. Pete Greenan reports fishing has been spotty this week in the Charlotte Harbor area including Bull and Turtle bays. Cold fronts hampered fishing for a few days , but when the weather cleared on Tuesday and Saturday fishing improved significantly.

Steve Gibson, owner of Southern Drawl Kayak Fishing, fished with me on Tuesday taking several nice seatrout on top water plugs in Whiddens Creek.

Steve also caught a larger redfish and a 27 inch snook on jigs in the same general area. Thursday's rain did not prevent Capt. Al White and I from fishing the canals of the Everglades for bass and brim. We caught one bass and several bluegill and Myan cichlids on Myakka Minnow flies and foam poppers in high wind and heavy rain conditions.

The Sarasota Fly Tyers waded the back-country of Bull Bay on Saturday. Eight intrepid anglers caught nearly 100 seatrout and 8 redfish on various flies in the deeper holes between the mangroves. All fish were released.

The warmer weather predicted for this week will help fishing improve. False albacore have been reported off Little Gasparilla Island and snook, redfish and seatrout will be easily available in the whole area.

There is still room in the Jan. 3rd fly tying class and the Jan. 10th fly casting school. And don't forget that reduced winter pricing is in effect.
